My Niece is So Damned Cute.

Olivia is at an age that I’m really starting to love. Not only is she running around on her own two feet and making all sorts of mischief, she’s downright adorably expressive. I took these photos around Memorial Day.

My youngest brother graduated from college this weekend. Naturally, I got pictures, and got some good use out of my new Canon EF 50mm ƒ/1.4, which I think may be my new favorite lens.

Next weekend I’ll be back in Vermont for Memorial Day: my sister and brother-in-law are hosting a barbecue. I’m sure I’ll get a ton of photos from that.

Mother’s Day Weekend

Went up to Vermont to spend some time with my mom and the other various family members left in my place of birth. Of course, I got some photos of Olivia, and quite a few of my dad, who happened to be over at the house while I was there. Sunday, I thought I would do something for my mother and cook her dinner, so I set off to the grocery store in search for some swordfish steaks, only to find out that not only was the fish market almost completely out of swordfish, but what was there was also fifteen bucks a pound. I don’t think so. So instead, I got some salmon, thinking that it was a similar type of meat and would cook nicely without changing too many of my plans.

What I hadn’t planned on, though, is that apparently my mother hates salmon. D’oh.

I do have to say, though, that despite that one little snafu, I completely rocked the meal: salmon steaks with lemon garlic herb butter, fresh brussels sprouts and rice pilaf. Three out of four of us loved it. Unfortunately, the one person who didn’t was the one I was cooking for. :)

And now, the aforementioned photos:

More Baby Photos

Amy came down to Connecticut on Wednesday with the baby, so I went over and had dinner, and took these while I was there.

Easter Sunday photos

Drove up to Vermont yesterday to spend Easter with the folks. Got these photos of the niece (and even one of two of my other nieces as well).

New pictures

Visited the family in Vermont this past weekend and got a bunch more photos. Even snagged a couple of one of the cats and my sister’s dog. Lots of great baby faces in this set.

More Baby Pics!

My sister came down to visit my dad again this week and so I made the trek over to the house today to spend some quality time with them and, of course, to take new baby pictures. Twice in the span of three weeks is great (and I’m probably headed up to Vermont this weekend, too, so that means even more), and she’s really starting to show some great facial expression, even reliably grinning when you do certain things (a raspberry sound seems to be her favorite).

New Baby Photos

Took advantage of a lack of sleep today to go visit my sister, who was down at my dad’s house with the baby. Got these photos while I was there.

New Baby Photos

Went up to Vermont this weekend (as detailed in my previous post) and got a good number of new photos of the niece, as well as some great shots of my sister’s dog.
